Join us virtually Monday, May 17 at 5:30 pm for the CHS’s Annual Members’ Meeting, where we will update you on the work of the CHS in 2020.
Last year, the CHS reached new audiences throughout the country and beyond with our quick pivot to virtual programming. During these unprecedented times, we have continued to bring our exhibitions and collections, as well as our adult, youth and family, and school programs to our audiences through online presentations, at-home educational activity kits and the John G. Martin Distance Learning Studio. Two major projects, installing compact shelving in the Hoadley Room and the construction of the Mowell Family Digitization Lab, have recently been completed.
We will look back at our compelling exhibitions, including the traveling exhibitions Manufacturing Victory: The Arsenal of Democracy and Fighting on the Home Front: Propaganda Posters of WWII, as well as CHS’s exhibition, A Vote of Her Own: The Long Fight for Woman Suffrage. We will also look at our current major exhibitions, Freedom Journey 1965: Photographs of the Selma to Montgomery March by Stephen Somerstein, a traveling exhibition from the New-York Historical Society and the CHS’s own exhibition, Connecticut Freedom Workers: Remembering the Civil Rights Movement.
This year’s meeting will be held via Zoom. All you need to attend this meeting is an active CHS membership and a device (laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet) with an internet connection. To RSVP, please email [email protected] and we will email you a link to join the meeting.
